The Smoke collection is a series of floor lamps based on scaled-down prototypical elements of suburbia – the factory, the house – isolated from their natural context and transformed into iconic additions for the home or office, belching "smoke", illuminating spaces and more. Floor lamps meant to light up living and working environments – to be useful and critical simultaneously – comment on our everyday lives, surrounded by pollution and consumption. Smoke lamps are a picture of our world transformed into a source of light, but they’re also a source of happiness and joy, around which the rituals of life can take place. They’re big enough to be used in both private and public spaces and are able to function independently or in combination in groups as small urban designs, emitting light through recyclable and easy-to-maintain Tyvek® "smoke" shapes.
